Custom Filetype Acronis 2018

Post by gerdhans2 » Wed Feb 28, 2018 10:26 am


i try to recover delete Files from Acronis 2018. I try to make a custom Filetyp in R-Stduio. The Filetype is .TIB

i read 5 Samples of my Acronis Files mit a HEX-Editor.

The Files begins allways with (HEX) CE 24 B9 A2 20 00 00 00 ( 8 Strings) and
the Files ends allways with (HEX) 00 00 00 20 A2 B9 24 CE ( 8 Strings).

I create this in a custom Filetyp Acronis2018.xml. But it don´t works.

Can somebody help me and show me how i have to write this .XML File.
I think it is a mistake in writing the Signature in hexadecimal.

My File Acronis2018.xml :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<FileTypeList version="2.0">
<FileType id="50001" group="ACRONIS" description="Acrons2018" features="" extension="TIB">
<Begin combine="OR">
<End combine="OR">
<Signature>\x00\x00\x00\x20\xA2\xB9\x24 CE</Signature>

thanks for help

How doesn't it work? It cannot be loaded? It cannot find anything?
Can it happen that the end string may appear somewhere in the middle?

It cannot find anything (the File). i can search this custom Filetyp. i select only this Filetyp to scan.

i have read only the begin and end of my files like the example in the manual of acronis. i dont looked fpr somewhere in the middle.
